Luter
05-15-2004, 03:25 AM
I wrote all a story for the background...I can't rewrite this..because, you know, my english...and nobody understand it ah ah ah..so..I just draw (that was a story with demons, robots and humans in a fantastic/SF/wonderful marvelous incredible world etc etc..).
Good work everybody

Nice work!
I also like your rendering of the guy. Super real!
The image looks like a machine is using human being to have another human being so the machine can use him like his parent.
So human being is like sex machine. Anyway that is just my imagination. I like the mysterious quality of the image.

Again, awesome work!

interesting and most funny way to get ur avatar back :D

The last concept doesnt convince me so much (2 much ordinary... normal), but the first posted pic is absolutly a masterpiece... even if its only a sketch... go on with brainstorming and make something epic-like.

Hei dude

I too lost my posts! and all coments... a lastime.

But, man! your art is amazing!

I loved your style, its very very expressive! congratulations!

The man whit the hands in the big robot head! Insane!

the color is perfect. Its a great Job! I imagine a scene - like the master Rodin, the "think"... a great parody... hehehe

Well, talking serious... the figure of the Head Robot make me think... we are mechanical creatures... repeat all day our errors... mechanical... the agony in the figure make me feel a bit of pain... in the head...

Dude, I invite you to see and comment my job.

and

KEEP THIS EXCELLENT WORK!:thumbsup:

Cheers!

Youre crazy man. I just saw your dialogue you put up for yourself. Uhm flooding your own thread :eek:

Anyway great work with the grayscale values. Looks to have a massive amount of dimensions in it. Do you have the color base somewhere else? Or are you just working with grayscale until your satisfied?

Great depth and values man :wavey:

Wish i could do stuff like that with ease like you do:hmm:

Luter
05-16-2004, 11:16 PM
Ohh thanks Falcor, but don't worry!!! I've seen your work and you seem to have no problems it"s a real good good good job man ! Me, I'm impressed !
I work with some docs and I'm working with grayscale until I'm satisfied for the bodies, background is only a vision. But what I prefer is to work with only my mind..

Oh I've just see what's mean "flooding". .I just wanted to re-cover my little new baby avatar, warf! no confusion !!! Didn't you like my funny dialogue ? Anyway..I'm not a good writer, specialy in english..:cry:

Its ok to say weird things specially in your own thread. Im glad you got your avatar back :thumbsup:

Even that avatar looks superb. And your latest! :drool:
Great works. For me i have to fail and try a lot, but you have the skills to bring out a new picture in just day or two. That amazes me a lot more than my own skills :bowdown:

Get the right idea and youre the winner!

Frood
05-17-2004, 05:54 PM
Salut Goli!
I've bumped into your sketches for a couple of days, I'm glad to finally step in to say how impressed I am.
Your drawings look gorgeous, you have gold in your hands buddy!
:buttrock:
I don't really have crits about the subjects. All I can say is a bit annoying, its about the TIP that was in the challenge registration: try to make the purpose of the machine obvious... or something like that.
I think that's what is not here yet.
Best of luck anyway!
As Falcor said, it seems that you work really fast, so I hope to see your talents exploitated in many different directions (why not something that isn't humanoïd?), and a good idea will become a incredible pic!
:applause: :beer:

Luter
05-17-2004, 07:18 PM
Thank you so much Falcor, that's very very kind of you. But you're wrong about your skills ! Me too I fail and fail and fail..you know... Maybe I have more time than you to work, that's all.
Your support and crits are welcome, thx again:wavey:

Frood, thx you too for your comments! And your crits are absolutly rights. I'm not yet in the concept..Your help is welcome and confirm what I feel. So..I return to my pencils..thx:thumbsup:

I am in awe of you Goli, and also Vincent_v, i love both of your works. The styles are somewhat similar but yet also different, i cant explain it, youve got a great touch for this sort of work. Cant wait till you have something finally resolved.

Ive only come accross the site and the competition just recently and seeing all the great works so far is really motivating. I cant wait to upload some of my wips. I could only wish to get as good of a response as you guys have had to your work, keep it up. and i wish you best.:thumbsup: :beer:

Welcome back!!, Your trip to paris has payed off, damn that is a crazy sketch, crazy in a really good way.

Looking at it really quickly i found it hard to figure out what i was looking at but the more i look the more i see. If this image is done in the same style as your other stuff it will look amazing.

I like the little demons controling parts of the larger guy and his freaky twin headed arm. This is the stuff of nightmares, truely excellent.:beer: :bowdown: :thumbsup:

would love to see a cleaner set of line work for what you have in mind. Obviously some really nice details would show up. Whatever you are doing keep it up, it works well.:D

05-25-2004, 06:16 PM
Welcome back!

Been waiting for your update. Looks great :)

But it already can be seen that it doesnt hold as strong dimensions possibilities as your second work. Which is masterpiece!
Great idea to have them little dudes tinkering the head
:thumbsup: Id personally remove the whole demon head to make it look more machineflesh stuff im used to think off. Just weird pottery and pipes will do.

Ah im lousy when it comes to supporting you sorry! :blush: Hope this mail was not putting you down! Keep it up goli! I'll stay and haunt your thread :D

Hey Goli

I love your thread....

I know i posted at least once in the 'hacker days' and didn't realise they'd been lost.

You have great drawing ability. There's some beautiful linework and fantastic detail in your work.

The first two sketches on your thread were really beautiful. There's a lovely sense of weight to your characters and their anatomy.

The 'cybersex couple' were also really nicely realised.

I still prefer those first two though. There's a serenity and peacefulness about those scenes that i just love.

But good look whichever way you go with it. It's beautiful work.

Luter
05-25-2004, 10:44 PM

In my opinion, I think that your loosing quality by increasing your virtuosism.

If I saw your second sketch, just like it is, you would have my vote. It's light, expressive, and it's all there.

Think on this.

Hey you talking about me.......:p ;)


I for one love this new rendition....................In fact one of my fav's now..................You and a few others here are impressing me with some real high quality work here..........

I think the quantity,the details are here for sure in big ways.......But the "Quality" too is here as well,I think that both quality and quantity can go hand in hand if the person behind the work is talented enough,as you are Jeff............This is a very intense and wild piece of work,love the details and the involvement of the characters.................Like this very much......Intensity at it's finest....................The whole shot is alive and gripping.......................NICE!!!:thumbsup: :buttrock:

I love this challenge........there is a so good feeling here........


lula_assassina, londero :

Your crits are very welcome. The headBotHuman seems, for me, as ninja said "too normal"...yes. There is no other dimension than aesthetic in this sketch or not enough fantastic mood, I don't know, something is missing here...I think.
I wish to keep the "feeling" of this one and mix it with the latest sketch. I'm working on it..It seems, for me, to have more advantages : 1/ it is more in the terms of the contest.
2/ It is bringing a small story within.
3/ machine is not only a cable-box on the head...
4/ I gonna take a lot of pleasure to realise all this little details:D

Vincent : :wavey: Hey guy, thx, your comments always an honnor.

Even thought i doubted this one initially. You have brought in the goli dimension! Everything coming from the plane of goli is always great. So is this one.

It actually made me took the pic and do all kind of weird experiments with it. It has superb potential i discovered!

*goli* :bowdown: *goli* :bowdown: *goli*
*possessed crowd cheers on*

This is my humble opinion (I'm an amateur in arts :blush:, just see my profile...) about your sketches:

chimera: cool concept, but it seems you left it...so forget it.
robot head: much better! about the painting, the mood is so mysterious.. smashing!

I really loved the painting, nice mood and energy you got in it...

The mechanical parts are still blurred and not detailed yet, I'm sure you're awear of that you are going to take care of that soon! I can't wait!

p.s. I hardly noticed the guy riding on his back... but he's really cool.

Great job... I think I'll join the 2D contest instead of the 3D one next time, as I've learned so much 3D while doing it, I really want to achieve good 2D skills too...

Good luck!

I don't want a Conan' style
Personally think there is nothing wrong with that!! The dark fantasy aspect of this image did make me think of Conan...a slight Jeffrey Jones like quality to your work perhaps. Having said that, IMHO there is no formulaic nor nostalgic aspect to the style or subject of what you have shown us...Conan like or not, i think it's great! can't wait for more!!

Great work i bet youre living in a room full of horse skulls i have no idea how you can make them look so real without you having one at your hands.

Youre also working directly to colors no need for newbie tricks like im doing.

Its also nice to see that the sketch actually felt flat to me, but this sure doesnt feel flat at all anymore! :bounce:

Goli after this competition, if you have the time, you should try and finish the piece HeadBotHumanFactory , i totally love it.
i really like the way you are rendering the skulls on you latest piece, i have a few animal skulls that i have been collecting over the years, they are actually very easy to come by here in south africa, and i was looking at one of them, after seeing the development on your artwork and damn its pretty spot on.
the way you are rendering them with light and shadow really is creating nice depth.

cheers for now i have to try and get a bit more work done on the composisition....... then sleep................then work..........aaaarrggg

I love what youve accomplished so far Goli, as ive said before youre doing an awesome job. I love the fact that youre able to retain so much of the detail youve created from the initial sketches.

As others have mentioned the skulls are looking amazing and the fine highlights and painting in on the skin is excellent, really captures almost a dead pale feeling to the character. It is as they say that the physical body is just a vessel for your soul but in this case its a vessel/machine for those little demons controlling it.

I really enjoy seeing your updates, cant wait to see whats next, thanks for your comments in my own thread, much appreciated buddy.:thumbsup: Keep the stuff great coming.:beer: :buttrock: :bowdown:

...LOL...time catching up?...i feel it too, but what the heck, we had actually MONTHS for doing ONE piece....

Well, i can only say this: ur style, techniq, and choice of character is SOOOO MUCH my kind of flavour:p

Still: Love those litle devils

...maybe we are related...family in some kind of way? Do u have ancestors in the area around Jupiter and Saturn? I think u do:D:D

And this is really so horribly beautiful ! The being manipulated like some puppet :drool:

SEL
06-08-2004, 12:30 AM
Fantastic! This piece is really starting to come together now, it looks a ton better without the old background as your able to see the character better, I would suggest creating a background where the main focus still drives the character, so a contrast color for BG would work best I think. Fantastic!! :beer:

Vince friend, always a so good feeling to read you in my thread..It's when we have the time that we are late ! ...'just kidding...about your technic question..I put the character ON the BG .......................... for the while, this empty space give me more facility to finish the paint-line-art..and btw it's more easy for testing different BG..skys, cities, landscape..I don't know yet................
I've read my genealogical tree..In fact my ancestors were from the #*/sector (btw saturn and jupiter, exatly, but behind the 3rd /vector, yu turn right and it's the upstairs in front of you...):hmm:

Neandertal : Thanks a lot my french companion ! It's no time yet for the BG....soon, I hope !

Sel : Thanks for you nice words...I'm agree with yu..That's what I'll try. There is a lot of pieces in dark/light, so BG will not easy to do...For now i have a lot work on the charcter...S..:) ....and the head.....etc....etc.....etc.............a long way to go!

goli your piece is magnifisant!, i know from the start it was going to be awsome (esp or something), but just one prob:blush:
are you still going to put a background in, i still like the original idea of him in that sort of sulfur like smokey background, mabey you can just add it very suttly (excuse spelling), but other than that, this piece rocks and it rocks hard, coooooooooooollll keep it up:drool: :bowdown:

Im doing it the same way with my pic....much easyier to test,different colors...Then makin BG as a whole pic for it self:)

When this contenst is over, i hope some of us participating still are going to stay in touch:)

Looking forward to follow BG progress:D

I hope things a going well for you Gol's, you working on the background atm? Im really looking forward to seeing your final work.

I wish i could provide you with some C+C for your image but i it looks amazing...
:lightbulb
What i might add is that i would like to see a bit more of those little devils, atm they are a little obsured only due to the fact that they are so overshadowed by their larger master...but i also assume that maybe thats the effect you want.

Im guessing that probably in your plans anyway but i just thought that i would mention it, they might look better if you couls see what theyre doing a bit more clearly....

Thanks for your comments in my thread its nice to see youre following my progress as well....In any case have an awesome day my friend and i look forward to seeing more greatness from you.

my friend...

I'm very impressioned. :)

your work really is very, very fine.

The controlers gnomes are simply awesome, and the total compose have a specie of dinamic equilibrium (balance) really expressive, combinating the power movement, the total perception of figure and, evident, a irresistible invite to repose the eyes in the great details...

really, is a honor to me can change ideas and experiences with a potential artist like you.

This is getting even better than i hoped for! Now the colors and more defining. I also liked when the background was white so it was very easy to see the monster. So dont try hiding the shapes :cool:

You still have whole week!
Dont rush it goli! Step in the master gear during weekend i hope you have time then:thumbsup:

This works so well in single color. Make the colors so they will add the pic.. Always compare your new version in your paint program next to each other so you will only update quality ;)

Very, very nice work, Jeff. Amazing skills and concept. IMO, I would just add soft variations over the general hue, just enough to find the picture not monochromatic. For example, some green -very subtle- in the BG could help, and also add deepness from the character- . I must say, just my oppinion. The picture is really nice, and great. For sure you'll be one of those few that jury has to think whether you are a winner. Congratulations!
